To most readers, not to mention the understand folks at Scribner, the Sources and Notes section of The King’s Best Highway, at roughly forty pages, no doubt seems far too long. To me, however, it isn’t quite long enough. So in addition I’ve offered a standard bibliography here, as promised in print.
I chose an annotated bibliography for the book, rather than a standard one, because I believe that’s the best way for readers to pursue individual topics within the narrative. Otherwise, with a story that spans four centuries, you might be left wondering just what Norman Bel Geddes’s Magic Motorways is doing beside Daniel Gookin’s Historical Collections of the Indians in New England, only to conclude that any connection between the two topics is, at best, not worth the wondering.
But a standard bibliography does serve a purpose. Some quick qualifications: I haven’t listed personal interviews or individual newspapers. I’ve linked to online collections when possible, but not to Google Books entries. I’ve placed an asterisk before works that were particularly helpful to my own, or simply masterful in their own right. Last, I have a strange affinity for Notes sections—”strange affinity” being the best compromise between accuracy and social acceptability—so feel free to contact me about this one.
